Flying Spaghetti Monster chronicles: Pastafarianism, born to ridicule ID, now taken seriously as religion in Europe?
|August 3, 2013||Posted by News under Intelligent Design, Religion|
Well, they seem to act as if it is. Readers may remember that the Flying Spaghetti Monster was invented to ridicule ID. Then some Austrian got the prank classified as a religion. (Most religions had harder births than dealing with a puzzled bureaucrat who doesn’t understand why you sport a spaghetti strainer on your head.)
Now the European Union goes for the whole monster. Hey, did someone else come up with the slogan, We report, you decide?
Rats. Gimme sumthin’ better. Now.
A man who wears a sieve on his head for religious reasons has been allowed to wear his bizarre headgear on his official identity card.
Prankster Lukas Novy, from Brno in the Czech Republic, claims that his Pastafarian faith means he has to wear the sieve at all times.
Officials ruled that turning down Novy’s request would be a breach of the country’s religious equality laws.
Okay. So these people are making fun of you.
That means there must be something wrong with you. Right?
Oh wait. Lemme check my notes here.
Note: It’s not clear from the Wiki page that we would be allowed to use the image, so you have to go here to see it. Michelangelo ripoff without God, basically.
